Jay Heflin with The Hill is reporting that Congressman and former US Senate candidate, J.D. Hayworth, has been chosen to be a national advocate for the TEA Party. For those who have followed Congressman Hayworth’s career, this is an excellent choice by leadership of the TEA Party movement
In 2009, prior to Rick Santelli’s famous words on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile, Hayworth was instrumental in giving rise to the Arizona TEA Party by lending his voice and by giving voice to leaders here in Arizona. As a broadcaster at KFYI, Hayworth promoted grassroots and TEA Party gatherings across Arizona including the famous 6,000 person march on the Sate Capitol on April 15, 2009.
Now as the TEA Party continues to make progress in States like Alaska, Delaware, Kentucky and Nevada, Hayworth’s understanding of the issues and his political redemption from a Congress that once lost its way will give further credence to this important American political movement.
